IDE drives auto detection problems + boot problems
Posted on 2003-03-11
Hi,I'm working on an P2 333Mhz.It have one HD of 3.2GB and one of 40GB + a cdrom.
My first problem was that my computer boot one time out of 10. When not, the monitor did not even open but the two leds of my computer indicate that power is up. After many power up/power down, XP finaly start.
So, I get out all the drives to verify the IDE configuration and the jumpers setting.(In case of a conflict between IDE). I put myn 40GB as the primary master, the 3.2GB as the primary slave and the cdrom as the secondary master. Now, it boot all the time but my BIOS can't detect any ide drive, not even the cdrom ? Worse, I can't start from a floppy even if my floppy seem's to be detected.
Is this a power supply problem a motherboard problem ? My Bios date from 1996.
thank's in advance !
